I only had the pleasure of knowing Chuck for the past 12 years but he was always a kind and funny gentleman. He loved Dolly, his family, his dogs, his home, his Church, and his Country. I can't believe he's gone, will miss him!

Chuck and I worked closely together along with our team mates at I/N Tek getting the Tandem Cold Mill (TCM) up and running. Spent many hours together answering shift calls on equipment that we were just beginning to understand. He was always fun guy to be around. Fantastic sense of humor.

What a shock! Chuck was always quick with his smile and his wit and a friendly word!!! We will miss him in the US Coast Guard Auxiliary, where he worked tirelessly on behalf of his Shipmates, serving the boating public in the Charleston area. The twinkle in his eyes will forever remain in our hearts! Daniel Cowley

Chuck was probably my closest friend when we first moved to Indiana in 1963. He was also best man at our wedding in 1977. Kind of lost touch when we moved to Tennessee but, reconnected on Facebook. Condolences to his extended family.

It is with great sadness and broken heart to hear this news. Chuck,was always so full of life and always had a ready smile. I and my husband will keep your family in our prayers. I just have no words to describe how shocked I was and how saddened I was when I heard this news.
